Promises promises – ‘commitment’ scholarships for gifted writers

Everybody needs it and most of us have had it. If not, we deserve it. But what is the riddle of ‘it’?

Simply, someone believing in you and offering a helping hand.

We want to hear from young writers with a real desire to write who just need a little jiggling and support to unlock their potential. In return, we’ll offer you a free place on our 12 week online novel course (worth £350), a 3 month and 6 month ‘check-up’ to view work and plan and achieve some writing goals and heavily subsidised mentoring/editing for the next year.

‘Young writers’ describes anyone fairly new to writing – there is no age limit or maximum.

To apply, please send sample writing (up to 5,000) to and a covering letter briefly describing your experience to date. Writers may have had one novel published with an independent publisher. If in doubt, check with us.

Deadline: 1 November, 2014

The chosen writer needs to be available to take up their scholarship from mid January 2015. The winner will be announced 14 December, 2014
